State House Democrats push to ban bump stocks, repeal Handgun Permit Review Board

ANNAPOLIS, Maryland — Democratic members of the Maryland General Assembly are calling for passage of what they’re calling gun safety legislation. Among their proposals, a ban on bumpstocks, a device that can turn semi-automatic guns to make simulate an automatic gun. The lawmakers also want to repeal the state’s Handgun Permit Review Board and turn that responsibility over to administrative law judges.
